Which folder has the saved flights? flt and pln files?

Recommended Posts

For some reason, when I try to save a flight, its asking me for a folder. and when I try to load a flt, its again asing me for a folder. I had plwnty of sved flight and now I can't find them

I tried searching *,flt in my C drive and within my d:\MSFS (I have installed MSFS here) and I can find any of my flt files

 

Any ideas?

Here for me :

C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

Hi Livingston. Thank you.

Did you install the sim in default folder? or your own folder?

That's where my recent flights are being stored. The defaut dir suggested. but it doesn't have any of my prior flights. Hm...it's been removed. Hmmm. Interesting. Not a big loss. but interesting.

Hi Manny:
That folder - in C:\Users\...\AppData\..etc.. - is a link to the actual installation folder where the sim resides. I my case, that AppData folder is  C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Packages\,  and it contains some 108 MS packages, each folder being a link to wherever you actually installed that particular Microsoft package (or program) (or "app" as they like to call their programs nowadays).

My flightsim itself is actually on the "H" drive:-
H:\WpSystem\S-1-5-21-3869908899-3504216640-1147265394-1001\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

You might try a search on your C:\, looking for ".pln". I did find an old plans folder this way from last October, but am not sure they were generated by MSFS or by LittleNavmap..
